Conservatives may have a choice in the 11th Congressional district after all.
David Trott has a few extra bucks lying around I am sure. The foreclosure king’s self funded primary netted him a win over under-financed Kerry Bentivolio in the August primary. But what the heck, Kerry still has signs, and is an incumbent congressman. Its not a stretch to say that he COULD pull off a write in win, if people can learn how to spell B-E-N-T-I-V-O-L-I-O in time for the general election.
He told MIRS on Monday that he and his family will write in his name on the ballot in November and that he is still considering filing for an official write-in campaign.
Write-in candidates in Michigan have until Oct. 21 to file declaration of intent forms for the November election.
“I’m trying to decide whether to send my opponent a congratulations or receipt for the purchase of the 11th Congressional District,” Bentivolio told MIRS.
This guy is OK in my book.
